Mission Statement

Short Mugs Rescue Squad is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the health and well-being of French Bulldogs. We are based out of Texas and run and managed solely by volunteers. Our main objective is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home French Bulldogs that come to us from many sources including local animal shelters, owner surrenders, strays, commercial breeding kennels, import brokers and private rescue groups.

We also rescue other brachycephalic breeds such as English Bulldogs, Boston Terriers and Pugs on a case by case basis. We are based out of the Houston area, but we rescue across the entire state of Texas along with Oklahoma and Louisiana.

We do not usually adopt to out of state applicants. The reason for this is if there is a need to return the dog for any reason we do not have any volunteers in the area to take them back in. We will consider out of state applicants on a case by case basis in the states of OK and LA only. We are not able to adopt to other states.

Foster Dogs:

  Miller
***Miller was returned because the resident frenchie did not accept him. He is a very happy, active boy that requires a yard and CANNOT have a pool. He is obsessed with water and will fling himself in and drown.

  ELSIE
Adoption fee: $600 Location: Austin area Elsie was surrendered when her family fell on hard times. She is an active, young girl who loves to be around her people.
